This broad spectrum miticide/insecticide uses botanical oils (cottonseed, clove and garlic) to kill and control many varieties of mites, thrips and aphids. This ready-to-use, pleasant smelling spray can be used indoors and outdoors. It is just right for spot treatment of houseplants and equally effective outside in your garden or on your trees. As with all pesticides that use botanical oils, for best results (and to minimize the effects on pollinators) spray when temperatures are cooler, either early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
Suggested Uses: Use as a pesticide to control mites, thrips and aphids.
